    Wheel size Limitations

    I think I know the answer to this but I want confirmation. I have a 26 x 1.75
    tire. Am I limited only to that size with the current rims I have - the 1.75?

    Of course not, but what you can safely use depends on the rim width. Check out http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire_sizing.html

    It's pretty much a trial fit process.

    Sheldon's website will tell you if the tire will fit onto the rim, but that doesn't mean that it will fit onto the bike.
